Keeper of closed cemetery in Omsk allowed to bury dead for bribes
A trial in respect of former cemetery keeper is about to begin in Omsk.
In exchange for bribe, 54-year-old Nikolay Cheremnov allowed family members to bury their dead on the Severo-Vostochnoe cemetery, which had been closed for burials for 13 years.
The former funeral services employee is charged with 86 criminal counts under Article 290 of the Russian Criminal Code.
According to the investigation, in the period from December 2014 to April 2015 the accused received bribes ranging from 5 to 15 thousand rubles from funeral agents for permission to bury deceased in a private cemetery.
Thus, the total amount of bribes obtained by Nikolay Cheremnov exceeded 410 thousand rubles. He now faces imprisonment of up to eight years and payment of a fine. The keeper fully admitted his guilt.
Spanish prosecutor is widely known as the man who "brought down the Russian mafia in Spain," as he has been fighting Tambovskyaya, Solntsevskaya, Malyshevskaya, and Izmaylovskaya organized crime groups of Russia. Jose Grinda condemned the UK’s lack of cooperation in a fight with the organized crime which has gone increasingly global.
Former Presidential Adviser on Internet Development German Klimenko, who had predicted “the end of Telegram’s glory,” re-installed the illegal messenger, which he had previously refused to use after the court's decision to ban it.
